Opponent: Orlando Magic

Stat line: 16 points, 1 rebound, 7 assists, 1 steal, 71% field goal

The Raptors seem to have found another potential diamond in the rough in Terence Davis. He has proven this season that given the opportunity he will produce for the team. With the Raptors being so thin at the point guard position, Nick Nurse has asked Davis to play soak up some back-up minutes at the position, and he has looked relatively comfortable for an undrafted rookie.

Davis had a similarly great game against the Charlotte Hornets stat-wise, but most of his points and assists came during garbage time in that one.

This game was much different as Davis immediately got it going when he checked on the court in the first quarter. He scored a quick eight points to go along with two rebounds in his first three minutes in the opening frame. Davis did not let his foot off the gas in the second quarter, as he scored another five points and grabbed another three rebounds.

After a quiet third quarter, Davis once again turned it on in the fourth. He continued to execute on the offensive end, scoring six more points to push his total to 19 on the night. He also contributed four assists in the fourth quarter alone, resulting in nine Raptor points.

Even with Lowry and Ibaka coming back soon, Davis seems to have earned himself enough playing time to remain in the long-term rotation as yet another young building block.
